Creating new pages

To write a new article, just enter the article title in the box below.

Tips for creating new pages

  • Does the page need an infobox? An infobox is a template used to collect and present a subset of information about its subject. Most pages on the wiki have infoboxes. You can add an infobox by using the 'Add other templates' option in the edit mode panel on the right hand side.
  • Give the page a category. On the right hand side of the editor is a "Categories" module. Click to expand this and you will see a list of the categories already present. To add a category, type the category name in the input area above the existing categories. As you type, you will see suggestions appear. Popular categories include subcategories under Category:Universe and Category:Characters.

General formatting tips

  • Check spelling and grammar before submitting an edit.
  • Page names at the top of articles should be in bold.
  • All Universe and Character articles should be written in past tense. The top paragraph may be written in present tense if the character is still alive.
  • Link other articles. The wiki is easier to navigate if every page has links. If you mention a character, create a link to their page by putting double brackets [[ and ]] around their name in 'source mode'. You can also use the hyperlink button in visual mode. Link to Ingrid Dracula in source mode:
[[Ingrid Dracula]]
  • Mention episodes by creating a link to the episode and using " " quotation marks. Link to "When You're a Stranger" in source mode:
"[[When You're a Stranger]]"
  • Add titles and subtitles for page clarity. The relationship section of a character page uses this standard formatting:
===Ingrid Dracula===
===Erin Noble===


When you're posting factual information, other readers will want to verify the information. Please try to add URLs of websites where factual information is given.

A reference in source mode:

Plague is a bacterial infection.<ref>[ 'TEXT']</ref>

Make sure this code is at the bottom of the page so references are displayed:
